Paul Cary Goldberg was born in 1950. His career as an artist began in 2000, and since that time he has been in over 45 group exhibitions, with solo exhibitions at the Sherman Gallery of Boston University, Girrafics Gallery in East Hampton, NY, the School House Center, Provincetown, MA, the Print Center in Philadelphia,Seraphin Gallery, Philadelphia, the Cape Ann Historical Museum in Gloucester, MA, and the Pucker Gallery in Boston.
Goldberg's photographs are a blend of an old master painterly calm and contemporary practices. He sets up his still lifes with a single light source and a black background, in the tradition of a Dutch master painter. He then uses a 4 x 5 camera to shoot the photos, and a state of the art Iris printer to digitally print them onto a mat cotton paper. The effect has an incredible smoothneess of tone and saturation of color.
"These photographs have a weight about them. And a weightlessness. There is mystery in the shadows. Infinity in the details. The colors are plump and full of passion. But in the end, it's always the beauty that matters."
